The Institute is recognised for its research leadership in aid effectiveness and international development to address the global challenges of sustainable and equitable development.
Through research, innovation and partnership we work with government, donors, non-governmental organisations and the private sector to address the complex challenges of international development and aid effectiveness.
The Sustainable Development Goals are at the centre of our approach, including integration and collaboration across multiple goals.
Our services include research and analysis; process design and facilitation; policy and technical advice; independent evaluation; innovation in monitoring and evaluation approaches; training and organisational development.
We contribute to development practice, policy and theory across four key areas:
- Development effectiveness
- Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)
- Climate change adaptation
- Urban planning and city development
